The Syrian Coalition said that the latest agreements signed between the Assad regime and Iran whereby significant Syrian assets were transferred to Iran are “null and void.”
Iranian media outlets on Tuesday reported that “agreements” were signed between the Iranian regime and the Assad regime. The agreements included one involving the transfer of the management of one of Syria’s seaports to an Iranian company, while another one involved awarding a mobile phone license to Iranian companies affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.
“These plans clearly represent the looting of the Syrian people and their country’ wealth by the Iranian extremist militias in Syria,” the Coalition said.
On behalf of the Syrian people, the Coalition denounced these agreements “as illegal and unacceptable under any circumstances.” It stressed that “these agreements represent further a blatant violation of Syria’s sovereignty as they are meant to reward an occupation force in return for its involvement in shedding the Syrian people’s blood and attempting to break their will.” (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Office)
